Welcome to the beautiful City of Chester where your Guide is waiting to show you over 2,000 years of history including:

The Chester Walls

The mighty circuit of walls, first built by the Romans when they established their Fortress Deva, and the remains of the largest Roman stone-built amphitheatre in the country.

The Rows

Our unique two-tier shopping galleries first built in the Middle Ages when Chester was a thriving sea-faring port.

The River Dee

The attractive riverside promenade with its complete Edwardian bandstand, Victorian ice-cream kiosks and boat trips along the River Dee.

The Eastgate Clock

The famous Eastgate Clock, said to be the second most-photographed clock in the country.

The Towers

The impressive towers along the walls with their hidden secrets.

The Roodee

The Roodee, the oldest racecourse in the country.

No matter what time of year you visit, there is always something going on in Chester, including the many festivals, parades and Town Crier proclamations throughout the summer, to the Winter Watch Parades, Winter Wonderland and Christmas Market in the colder months. Your Guide will keep you informed of where to be and when, so you can be sure to make the most of your visit.

Afterwards you can relax in one of the many old hostelries, cafes or restaurants and plan your next day of delights, whether that might be a visit to Chester’s award-winning Zoo (as seen on TV in Our Zoo) or to venture deep in to the surrounding countryside of Cheshire, Merseyside or North Wales.
